It’s time for another variant of Galaxy S5 which is more powerful and its screen has more pixels!! The Samsung Galaxy S5 LTE-A was announced today for Korean market and as the name suggests it supports LTE-Advanced which means the data speed reaches to 225Mbps. Other than the whopping data speed, the new Galaxy S5’s variant features the world’s sharpest display thanks to the QDH display, and the Snapdragon 801 processor clocked at 2.5GHz along with 3GB of RAM are the other distinguished features you cannot find in the international variant of Galaxy S5.


Galaxy S5 LTE-General Specifications:

  • 142.0 x 72.5 x 8.1mm; 145g
  • 5.08-inch WQHD Super AMOLED screen, 2,560 x 1,440 pixels.
  • Quad-core 2.5GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 805
  • 3GB of RAM
  • 16MP / 2MP Main and Front cameras
  • Android 4.4 KitKat
  • 2,800 mAh battery
  • Colors: Charcoal Black, Shimmering White, Electric Blue, Copper Gold, Sweet Pink, Glam Red


While we cannot think of any other powerful combination of hardware pieces to be packed in to the Galaxy S5 LTE-A, but the build material is still disappointing as the Korean OEM has been using the same plastic body we’ve already seen on almost any other Samsung’s smart devices.

Like the original variant, Galaxy S5 LTE-A equips with heart rate sensor as well as the fingerprint scanner and you don’t need to worry about the water and dust as it carries the IP67 standard.

The LTE-A means you can surf the web up to 3 times faster than the common LTE-enabled networks and your download speed can theoretically reach up to 225Mbps and just imagine how fast this internet connection is.

Galaxy S5 LTE-A is available through different Korean carriers and is priced at $919.


We are still not sure whether there will be an international variant of Galaxy S5 LTE-A or not, but it seems all the rumors and news about the premium version of Galaxy S5 (so called, Galaxy S5 Prime or Galaxy F) with metal build quality and highest specifications possible could be true and we may finally see a Galaxy device with a premium look.
